Other World Computing today announced the OWC Mount Pro drive sled for adding any 2.5″ Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drive or Solid State Drive (SSD) to 2009 and later Apple Mac Pro ‘Nehalem’ & ‘Westmere’ models. Manufactured with the highest quality processes and materials including powder coated aircraft grade aluminum, the $24.99 MSRP bracket comes backed by a lifetime warranty.
Offers Plug & Play Addition Of Performance Boosting OWC SSD
Mac Pro owners seeking to dramatically increase system performance can use the Mount Pro to add one of the fastest SSDs on the market, the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD, and experience data rates up to 285MB/s. The bracket comes with four drive mounting screws and replaces an existing 3.5″ drive tray. The OWC Mount Pro perfectly aligns the SATA connector on the mounted 2.5″ drive into the back plane SATA ports on the Mac Pro.

With a highly durable blue powder coated finish, the OWC Mount Pro looks great while also offering at a glance verification of which Mac Pro drive bays contain 2.5″ form factor drives. The open design of the Mount Pro aids in drive heat dissipation.
